Quick note. It was refreshing to see that Hal Steinbrenner had quite a bit to say about Aaron Judge and what they want from him going forward. They are thrilled he's a Yankee, thrilled that he was drafted and beyond thrilled for what will be.
You don't always hear stuff like this from an owner... but it's out there and it's exciting.
Bryan Hoch of MLB.com has the nuggets:
"Hal Steinbrenner said that it was "emotional" to watch Aaron Judge homer in his first Major League plate appearance, and the Yankees' managing general partner is counting on the 24-year-old slugger to grab hold of the starting right-field job next spring.

I'm looking forward to seeing Judge blossom. I can tell, the Steinbrenners are equally psyched.
To that... I say bring it!
